5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping promises Feb. 10 2002
The Qallupilluq is an imaginary Inuit creature that lives on Hudson Bay, according to the book's afterward. This troll-like thing wears a parka made of loon feathers and is said to grab children when they walk near the cracks in the ice.
This creature was invented much like others' hobgoblins, to frighten children into listening to their parents.
This version of an encounter with the Qallupilluit comes from Michael Kusugak, an Inuit man who was raised in the Arctic. He sent it to Robert Munsch, who had stayed with Kusugak's family while visiting Rankin Inlet in Canada's Northwest Territories.
The result is a dance with some of the greater truths that transcend all cultures. Alyssa A. Lappen

2.0 out of 5 stars what is this, a children's horror strory? April 4 2014
By jives
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my opinion It is a scary story for children "human child, human child" is one of lines repeated throughout the book. The message is don't tell a lie, but it is a bit intense when the consequence for lying is loosing your siblings to the spirits of the sea who chant "human child, human child".
